workers demanded just as they find out the police to help them on the legal of blacklist when they were campaigning. with violence in syria raging on we sat down with dr bashar thought a country's ambassador to the u.n. in order to ask whether a solution is any nearer and the ongoing crisis this is art. joining our team for an exclusive sit down interview is syrian ambassador to the united nations dr bashar fahri ambassador thank you very much for speaking with our kids today thank you for having me with your to the center of the united nations estimates that more than eight thousand people have been killed since the anti-government uprising speak again in syria a year ago my question for you how long can the violence and bloodshed continue or whether it is one victim or it's thousands this is too much for the c.m.
people and for the syrian government there has been a huge exaggeration of the figures of the victims the government is not responsible for this election because as you know. because you know an international women's rights would be taken into consideration while assisting do you assess an aggressor going on in syria armed groups in syria maybe even resist an army unless they have the kind of football the reason that they use against the government and forces we have been saying for months we are dealing with a lot of groups by the beginning during the first eight months everybody was denying these facts. by saying that the syrian government is not telling the truth and that there are no armed groups and underground and that everything the government sitting government saying is about lies then out of a sudden after the eight months and when the u.n.
official started talking about the scores of victims they acknowledged that in syria the government is dealing with armed groups i'm not saying that all the opposition. in syria these are the opposition in syria is about wings we are dealing with peaceful demonstrators on one hand but we are leaning also with armed groups on the other hand otherwise how would you explain that so far the syrian government has lost two thousand five hundred officers security officers army officers army soldiers and people beyond i mean stuff going on you are the unfortunate of the lot this dimension should be taken into consideration why. assessing what's going to go in syria you've said that there is as long as some mercenaries that are part of the opposition. is a possible that there's regular civilians that are fighting for and just
a bit of justice or are in the streets fighting for justice those who fight for justice purity justice should engage in the government's court for the national an inclusive and the government is really serious and committed to making the includes the syrian led political process a successful work why is the syrian government fell so far in bringing the opposition in for talks because the opposition is not independent and it's making decisions and the opposition i mean here i'm talking about the extent of the opposition this wing or the opposition as well as the armed groups of the decision makers outside of syria the fulfill instructions coming from saudi arabia from turkey from france from from washington you are talking here about an ip war of armed groups. which which are not independent. in
policymaking they cannot the decision without getting the green light from washington or. or saudi arabia or turkey you just named countries and cities why would those countries and cities be interested in creating chaos in syria some of them would like to settle all the accounts with us such as the americans for those of us the british because syria was against the invasion of iraq and they didn't forget it and they want to separate their accounts with us. well you look back might be a surprise for you but this is how it is washington this long gone would like to create a deviation from the palestinian question we have the israelis our corner of right now as you know on the issue of. the by the seniors to get the full membership in the united nations i think that's why they were absolutely absolutely not only syria yemen egypt tunisia algeria all that you don't think any of this was about
that the citizens of those countries just wanting to create better lives for them saudis are do things that i said i'm not judging or assessing the domestic situation in these countries i'm saying there are there are legitimate claims that should be listened to and taken into consideration even in syria the government should listen to the legitimate claims of the people otherwise there is no justification for any government kristie willing to use it works against the interests of its own people but the issue is that these capitals western capitals need to create a deviation they found what they were looking for in the collision of the situation in syria by by using this channel as a deviation. they they can serve the interests of peace that we can
serve the interests of those who are against giving the full membership to the palestinian state and the united nations i'm saying this because the israelis and the americans are coordinate with this in. the international community so-called international community i don't believe for much of this war magic war but for the people what they say these international community has been supportive of the palestinian request to get the full membership yes the majority of your states of the united nations all of whom the palestinians have got so far one hundred thirty five states supporting their request to get the full membership there is no way they could progress one inch would decide to go up but when they gather one hundred thirty seven votes against syria in the general assembly then there there should be a declaration of war against syria because syria is not fulfilling that is it mission will be serious and it's about the people it's about double standards they are not serious about making any assistance to the syrian people they are harming
the syrian national political aims by using these claims against the will of the syrian people how to syria expect russia and china to remain as adamant as as they have remain in preventing any kind of military intervention from becoming a solution in syria and we know that russia and china has veto two resolutions plus the security council but i was to come by the us we have many friends in the security council and the forefront of course russia and china they were the only two that cast not at the arm of the or the last presentation or it's the case that leaders because there are one or the other talk out of the p five let me rephrase that they were two out of the only two out of fifteen that did not support that resolution and the second then this all the second the most recent what i remember in the first of the opposition. for abstained. and for a few week for i'm not talking about i don't want to divide the hours but the most
recent one russia and china be understand what's going on in the war they are by wars and they know that. if they let go once again. on syria the that would be the end of the international and the end of the charter of the united nations there are rules to be observed southern feel of number states this is not me i am saying that this is the provisions of the topic you have to respect the sovereignty you have to respect the territorial integrity you don't have to interfere in domestic affairs of member states you have to help yes you have to assist yes but don't take advantage of the suffering of the peoples in order to interfere in their domestic affairs for your own purposes you as a france and britain have never been keen interest in serving the interests of neither the syrian people nor the russian people nor the chinese people these
powers insisted for six decades on ignoring this theory that israeli occupation of the golan if they were really serious about helping the syrian people they would have exerted pressure on these ladies to withdraw from the syrian border to withdraw from the remaining people in in south lebanon occupied by using that tool to give to the palestinians their you know you know variety of some of the communication and having their own state in their own country so these elements are . a lot of global issues and should be understood as these when i ask you about the more than eight thousand people have been killed in syria you said that it's not the fault of the syrian government russia has said that the responsibility falls on both sides both sides are responsible for the violence and bloodshed that the government in syria and the opposition group but at this point it's not about point blaming one side or the other it's about you know getting humanitarian assistance
in there creating some kind of dialogue having said that why do you believe the world should trust that the syrian army is using force adequately i didn't say that the government is not responsible for i said that the government cannot as your the responsibility or for these killings in syria because of course in any military confrontation get the army is is a is the governments are so in any military fighting there is on the one hand the government and on the other the armed groups these two sides are killing each other in a position of war. in them and some swore because what the government is saying is that. he's addressing the opposition by see you have claims let us discuss these claims at the table not by using weapons and by just the demolishing and destructing and attacking all you really find really pipelines gas lines not by
killing live in military pilots not by assessing meeting governments often shows doctors academy it's not as if this is what the government say the government is not denying them the forty fourth of the country on the contrary we are totally open minded towards a new form of the country and i think only speaking this is what happened in the with the book from of the new constitution and the president from now on will have only two terms that will be put under them to elect the president from among the many candidates not only more popular politicized i mean not one candidate many candidates for the presidential this is what the opposition was calling for and this is what happened now it is there we have it why
